Here at Baron Insurance, we pride ourselves in being reliable advisers for our customers and clients. Today, we would like to single out bar and grill owners and tell them how to properly protect their business. We know how important your business investments are to you, but we want you to be aware that insurance is also very important. Here are a few tips to help keeping your business protected for the long run:
As a restaurant owner, you know that the risks associated with your business are very large. We want to be here to help you keep those risks down to a minimum.
- Kitchen Fires- Ensure that your kitchen’s cleanliness is maintained throughout the day to help reduce the risk of grease fires. Unplug any major electric equipment when you are not using it. And, use caution when you are lighting your grill or stove- keep your sleeves rolled up and install a sprinkler system just in case of an emergency. Make sure you have a smoke detector nearby and that the batteries are full charged.
- Employees- In the food service industry, your employees are susceptible to slips, spills, burns, cuts, and physical strain. Make sure to conduct regular training sessions. As well, ensure your employees are wearing the correct footwear and clothing that will minimize the risk of injuries.
- Liquor Liability- If your bar and grill serves alcohol, your business is at risk of facing liquor liability law suits. Liquor Liability Insurance can offer your business protection if a liquor-related claim is filed. Make sure your employees are trained to check IDs, recognize the signs of intoxication, and politely refuse service if needed.
Cleaning and Maintenance:
When you are in the food business, cleanliness should be your number one priority. We know that when liquor is involved, the job of cleaning up can be very large and unpleasant, however keeping your bar and grill clean is important to the overall success of your business.
As in any industry and business, you should give careful consideration into who your hire. Your best bet is to find people that have experience working in the food industry, are of age, and who have a bartending license. Try looking for someone who is good at working with people and has excellent customer service skills.
At the end of the day, you need to make all the right decisions and put all the right precautions into place to be successful. We don’t want anything to have to go wrong in your bar and grill, which is why we offer the right insurance policy and coverage to keep you protected. Here at Baron Insurance, we take pride in researching your options and delivering you exactly what fits your needs.
