Commercial Property Insurance
protects your food truck and its contents from insured perils outside your control, such as fire, natural disasters, and theft. It can also include business interruption coverage if your business cannot operate because of an insured claim.

Equipment Breakdown Insurance
is critical coverage to consider when purchasing insurance for your food truck. The cost to repair or replace commercial appliances that are broken or damaged from a mechanical or electrical issue can undoubtedly add up. So you’ll want to make sure you have Equipment Breakdown Coverage in case this happens.
