Food Liability Insurance Program
All tenants should have general liability insurance. Whether you are renting our kitchens for one shift or full-time you must have insurance. Having insurance limits your liability in the instance there is damage done to our facility, equipment, or your products. Make sure your policy lists Laurel Kitchens as an "additionally insured" property owner.
