How does ice cream parlour insurance work?

Protection for your business no matter the season

As an ice cream parlour your business helps put smiles on people’s faces with ice cream treats. But to keep those customer smiles coming you’ll want to ensure you have the right cover in place for your business. You likely depend on your equipment and your employees to carry out your daily duties and these are all areas where ice cream parlour insurance can help. Consider what you might do if your ice cream equipment was to break down or an employee suffers an accident at work. No doubt these are the sorts of problems that we all wish wouldn’t occur, but while we can’t stop them from happening we can find cover for you, ensuring your business doesn’t suffer financially. From damage or theft of your utensils, damage to your kitchens equipment, or an expensive claim if an employee or member of the public is injured or worse at your premises we can find a policy to cover you. We help you to manage these risks and keep your business safe by sourcing a tailored Ice Cream Parlour business insurance policy. 

At The Insurance Octopus, we research comprehensive and tailored business insurance policies that are designed to be flexible, allowing you create an insurance policy just the way you want it and ensuring that all of the essential cover you’ll need is in one, simple business insurance policy. 

What your ice cream parlour insurance policy includes

Public & Product Liability insurance

Public Liability insurance is available for ice cream shops with various levels of cover ranging from £1m, £2m, and £5m. Public Liability insurance is important as it helps to protect you if a member of the public gets hurt or injured whilst on your premises. With Product Liability you are covered should your goods (ice-cream) harm any of your customers – think food poisoning or food contamination type claims. 

Employers Liability

Employers liability insurance is a legal obligation to have if your shop employs permanent or temporary members of staff. Cover is available at a standard level of £10m. 

Contents and Stock cover

Contents and Stock cover can protect against the loss or theft of stock, as well as provide protection for your fixtures and fittings, kitchen equipment, computers and electronic business equipment. The cover helps to enable you to replace all the above in the event of a claim. We can also provide cover for deterioration of stock, should your refrigeration units fail.

Business Interruption, Cash on Premises, and Goods in Transit

Business Interruption, Cash on Premises, and Goods in Transit are further add-ons that can be increased or decreased as required making sure your insurance is just what you need.

Why you need ice cream parlour insurance

As an ice cream shop owner, you are at risk from many eventualities, from malicious damage to theft of stock by burglary or theft of monies by an employee. All these risk factors need to be considered when looking for a comprehensive insurance policy that covers your business. To help ensure that your business is highly profitable you need to protect it and yourself from financial loss. 

Ice Cream Parlour Insurance can also protect you against compensation claims and legal expenses. Even if you win a case, legal fees can be considerable so it is important for your financial success that you are covered by Public & Employers Liability insurance.
