Markel Specialty insurance for the restaurant industry

Most businesses don’t run risks from hot stoves, sharp knives, heavy loads, and easily disgruntled customers. But your restaurant does.

That’s why you need Markel Specialty’s workers compensation and businessowners insurance for restaurants—coverage for the specific insurance needs of your business such as equipment breakdowns, on the job accidents, and employment practices liability.

Our workers compensation policy can help you protect your business from the costs of an on-the-job accident including lost wages and benefits, medical care, and legal representation. The Markel Specialty businessowners policy, EssentialBOP, is customizable for your place–covering liability, property, and other areas essential to helping you protect your assets. Plus, if you combine our workers compensation and businessowners policies you will earn a 10% multi-policy discount.* Also, by adding Markel Specialty’s commercial umbrella liability insurance policy over eligible EssentialBOP policies can provide qualified customers additional insurance protection for the costs of catastrophic claims and lawsuits.

Our restaurant insurance is a great fit for all kinds of eateries including:

  • Casual dining restaurants
  • Ice cream and yogurt shops
  • Cafés
  • Sandwich shops
  • Bakeries

 *The discount applies to businessowners policy only.  Multi-policy discount not applicable to Equipment Breakdown Protection and Employee Practices Liability Insurance endorsements.
Insurance and coverage are subject to availability and qualifications and may not be available in all 50 states. Coverage may not be available for all business types. Contact a Markel Specialty agent for more information. Insurance is underwritten by Markel Insurance Company, Glen Allen, VA. Your policy is the contract that specifically and fully describes your coverage, terms, and conditions.

Your recipe for success should include insurance from Markel Specialty.

A workers compensation policy combined with a businessowners policy from Markel Specialty bundles commercial general liability insurance with commercial property insurance for a miuti-policy discount. It’s the solution you need to keep your restaurant cooking.

From the back door to the front of the house, Markel Specialty’s insurance coverages have restaurants in mind.

Markel Specialty provides the affordable coverage that every restaurant needs. Unlike cookie-cutter business policies, we can protect you and your assets with a policy custom-made for restaurants and eateries.

  • Convenient flexible payment plans

    "For smaller companies it's so convenient to have flexible payment plans for what would otherwise be an immense expense. Plus, the website makes it easy (less than 2 minutes) and I almost never have to speak to anyone. Your customer service reps are nice, but not having to make a phone call all the time is wonderful!"
