Business owner’s policy costs for caterers

Caterers typically pay about $70 per month for a business owner’s policy (BOP), or a median annual premium of $845. The median value eliminates high and low outliers, providing better representation of typical catering insurance costs than the average value.

A business owner’s policy bundles general liability insurance with property insurance, usually at a discounted rate. Pricing is determined by your company’s location, operations, and value of business property. High-value equipment generally leads to higher premiums. This policy may also include business interruption insurance.

Median cost per year: $845
Policy limit: $1 million per occurrence
Policy deductible: $500

Workers’ compensation is required in almost every state for catering businesses with employees. This coverage helps pay medical fees and lost wages for employees who are injured on the job.
