Many restaurants’ CGL policies do not extend to off-premises catering. Make sure Christmas / Holiday and New Years Caterers are properly covered for their off-premises catering exposure.
Caterer liability is designed for individual caterers, restaurants (off-premises catering) or catering companies, whether catering a small reception or a large-scale event. Caterer Liability Policy will respond to defend a caterer in a court of law if a lawsuit is brought against them for injuries such as: 

  • A caterer’s food causes event guests to get sick
  • A caterer’s equipment causes someone to trip and become injured
  • A caterer’s hot dish scalds an event guest
