Why do food trucks need insurance?

Beyond workers’ compensation to protect your employees and commercial auto to cover your food truck, venues may require you to carry general liability insurance. But a comprehensive business protection plan isn't just about meeting requirements – it's also about giving your business mobility and freedom to grow. Having the right insurance shows you’re prepared to face challenges, and could save you financially if an accident occurs.
