Dear Restaurant Owners,
Do you have coverage for Food Borne Illness and Contamination Shutdown?
Chipotle, a booming fast food restaurant chain has successfully dominated the health conscious and non-GMO lifestyle of fast food eating, up until they announced a nationwide shutdown for an outbreak of E-Coli upon their customers. This business interruption costed them 5% of their stock investments. This doesn’t mean a restaurateur should worry in the face of this distaster. This is simply a call to action.
Triggered by a media announcement of an occurrence of food-borne illness, an event like this can easily drive a restaurant into bankruptcy. The good news is that with Food Borne Illness insurance coverage you can claim coverage as long as the restaurant which has the occurrence is the same type and trade name as their restaurant.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimate that food borne diseases cause approximately 76 million illnesses, 325,000 hospitalizations, and 5,000 deaths in the United States each year.
