Workers’ compensation insurance costs for food trucks

The median cost of workers’ compensation insurance is about $105 per month for a food truck, or $1,270 annually. The cost of a policy varies significantly depending on the state, your business operations, and the number of employees.

Almost every state requires workers' compensation insurance for food trucks with employees. Even when it's not required, it's a wise investment given your profession's high risk of burns, cuts, and other cooking injuries.

If you're injured on the job, workers' comp will cover medical costs and provide part of the wages lost during recovery. Most policies include employer’s liability insurance, which protects food truck owners when an employee blames their injury on unsafe working conditions.
