At Skyscraper insurance, we’ve insured sandwich shops and delis. Many sandwich shops are busy and occupied by customers for the majority of the day. Customer walk-ins are great for business but can present many exposures. It’s important that sandwich shops and delis carry enough business insurance to cover the exposure they have on a daily basis.

You could be liable for property damage or bodily injury your business causes to a customer. Customers may slip and fall, get sick, or become a victim of verbal abuse as a result of something you or your employees may have done. Small business owners can experience fires, breakdown of refrigerators/computers, water damage, vandalism, and other losses that are covered under a standard business insurance policy.

Any food service business that mainly serves sandwiches ought to consider getting a sandwich shop policy. This includes sandwich shops, delis, and any other eateries that serve up sandwiches. Regardless of whether they’re called sandwiches, pita pockets, hoagies, subs, po-boys, or grinders, primarily serving sandwiches exposes a business to a common set of risks — and sandwich shop policies are specifically designed to protect a business from many of those risks.

Food trucks and caterers who serve sandwiches might have many similar insurance needs. There are other food truck insurance policies and catering insurance policies available that are more suited for these businesses, though.

The individual coverages included in sandwich shop policies can often be adjusted for a particular shop’s situations, so the exact coverages that policies offer can vary. Nonetheless, there are a number of common coverages that many sandwich shop policies offer as either standard or optional protections:

  • General Liability Coverage, which businesses in many industries use to protect themselves from common risks
  • Building Coverage, which may be necessary if a sandwich shop owns the building it’s in
  • Contents Coverage, which might protect small wares, ovens, storage equipment, cash registers, seats, tables, decorations and other items
