How do insurance companies define Caterers?

Caterers prepare and serve food at a customer’s location or rented facility for parties, weddings, meetings, receptions, etc. Food is usually prepared off site and brought in. Because of this, the products exposure is higher due to the time delay between preparation and service of food. Caterers often provide more than just food, also offering services such as linen and dishes, chairs and tables, entertainment, wait staff, music, decorations, and alcoholic beverages.

What risk exposure do Caterers have?

Property Exposures
Are from the cooking. While this type of operation is more of an oven type operation, there are
some grills and deep fat fryers that must have fire extinguishing protection, hoods and filters. The Florida kitchen must be kept grease free to prevent fire spread and also to protect employees. Kitchen cleanliness is the best prevention to fire.

Inland Marine Exposures
Include contractors’ tools and equipment, the transport of materials, and installation exposure. The types of
Inland marine exposure involves the goods of the insured being off site. The Florida insured will need a special floater to accommodate the various types of equipment that must be used for the catering.

Premises Liability
Premises liability is an off-premises exposure at a location that is generally not familiar to either guest or employee. It is very important that the owner has reviewed the area before the food is set and has determined the hazards involved in serving the food. Servers must be well trained in handling of hot food and accommodating the customers. The contractual arrangements must be made with standard contract of understanding to prevent disputes. There must also be a contract with the establishment where the food is served so that responsibilities are clearly understood. Florida products liability exposure can be controlled by monitoring the quality of food received, maintaining proper storage temperature and type, and quality control on length of time food may stay in the buffet or cafeteria area. Maintaining proper temperatures during transport is vital.

Automobile Exposures
Business automobile exposure occurs as the food is being transported from home premises to serving location. It is
important to be aware of the distance, the expertise of the Florida driver and the maintenance of the vehicles. While it is important to transport the food in a timely manner, there must be sufficient time provided for the safe transport of the food.

Workers Compensation
Workers compensation exposures come from slip and fall, cuts, burns and heavy and awkward lifting. The
Florida employees tend to be minimum wage and turnover may be high. Company incentives to encourage long-term
employment are positive.
