Workers’ Compensation for Rhode Island Businesses 

If you have employees working for you, you are required by law in Rhode Island to carry workers’ compensation insurance. A workers’ comp policy can help your employees who are injured or become ill because of work related events. The cost of this coverage can depend on how many employees you have, as well as the location of your business.

Commercial Auto for Delivery Services 

Does your pizza shop deliver? If so, you should consider a commercial auto policy. A personal auto insurance policy, as opposed to a commercial auto insurance policy, does not provide liability coverage if you are driving for hire (sometimes referred to as “using your vehicle for public or livery conveyance”). The term driving for hire includes delivery services such as pizza delivery. Reach out to request a quote for commercial auto delivery services. Once you reach out, an insurance professional will likely need a list of drivers, the year, make, and model of the delivery vehicles, and the radius they are being used in.

Commercial Property Insurance 

If there was a fire at your business, your tables, chairs, and any kitchen equipment would be costly to repair. Commercial property coverage can help protect your building, furniture, and inventory against things like theft and fire. It is important to note that commercial property insurance plans vary from policy to policy. Reach out to our local office if you have questions on what it may cover, or need to add coverages for additional perils, like breakage of glass.

General Liability Insurance 

This is a common coverage for business owners- and with good cause. Some examples of what general liability insurance will typically cover are customer slip and falls, copyright infringement, and product liability. For example, if a bad batch of cheese makes a number of your customers very ill, that could fall under product liability.   

Business Owner’s Policies 

A BOP, or business owner’s policy, can combine two common coverages for restaurants together- general liability insurance and commercial property insurance. An advantage to choosing a business owner’s policy is that there is often a savings compared to getting the coverages separately. In addition to these coverages, you can choose to add coverages based on what plans are available to you. Some of these could include:

Business Interruption Insurance 

If your pizza shop were to have a fire, it could take weeks or even months to rebuild so you could start accepting orders again. Business interruption insurance can help protect you from lost income due to a covered peril.
