Catering Trucks. Catering trucks are a unique risk to commercial insurance companies. They include both the auto insurance underwriting aspect, and the restaurant and food handling aspect. The owner of the catering truck faces the possibility of running over someone as a pedestrian on the way to a service site. Or, he might have an auto accident on the way there. Once at the location, someone could fall down and injure themselves while placing an order or consuming the food near the truck. Someone could become ill from tainted food. The truck could catch on fire from an open flame as many of the catering trucks come equipped with cooking facilities. One of the employees could injure themselves while cooking or preparing the food.
The right kind of insurance for the owner and operator of a catering truck or fleet of trucks is most important to protect the assets and to provide liability.
