There are certainly benefits to franchise ownership. To begin, you have the backing of an established corporation to guide you in your journey. But as with every venture, there are also risks. Let SAX Insurance Agency be your guide. Take certain measures on your own to protect your investment and be protected from day one:
If you’ll welcome customers or clients into a store or onto your premises, such as you would with most restaurant franchises, you must have public liability insurance. This coverage protects against slip and fall accidents, or any other event that could cause bodily injury or property damage.
Your employees might not be covered under the public liability insurance. In this case, you will need separate insurance to protect your staff while they’re at work.
If you have any type of inventory for your business, it’s a good idea to insure it against any loss or damage. This is especially true if damaged goods could cause you to close your doors until new inventory or equipment arrives.
If you invest in a property for your franchise, you’ll need to ensure the building where your business is housed stays in proper working order. Property damage insurance protects you in case of flood, fire, smoke, vandalism, and more.
If you hire any employees to work in your franchise, you need to protect yourself from any claims an employee might file. This can include claims such as wrongful dismissal or any type of harassment in the workplace.
If you have delivery trucks or use your personal vehicle for your business, it’s important to protect it while it’s on the road. You should have auto insurance coverage for all motor vehicles used to do business on a regular basis.
If your business has to shut down because of any type of accident, from vandalism to complete destruction of your property, you won’t just be out the money it takes to get back up and running, you’ll be out the revenue you would’ve earned if your doors had been open. Business interruption insurance helps you get a portion of those earnings back, so you don’t fall too far behind.
Are You Covered?
There are many factors that go into deciding which type of insurance you need when opening a franchise. Talk to your franchisors about the best insurances to get for your business model. Then, get those insurances before you break ground or open your doors, so you’re sure you’re protected from day one.
