Baton Rouge Restaurant Insurance – Story Recap  

In part 11 of our continuing series following Pete Ross, owner of a restaurant called Squeaky Pete’s Pork Emporium, Pete received a real bombshell. 

He was informed by his insurance agent, Tracy, that his current restaurant insurance policy will soon be canceled by the insurer due to Pete’s excessive claims activity. 

Pete was understandably perplexed, so Tracy explained to him from a business perspective why the insurance company came to that decision. 

Pete eventually sees her point and then asks what his options now are. 

Tracy tells him she’ll see what she can do for him. 

Business Insurance Baton Rouge – Coverage Scenario Part 12 

Tracy gets to work finding another insurance company who will be willing to insure Pete for Squeaky Pete’s Pork Emporium before Pete’s current policy ends. 

A couple days later, Tracy gives Pete a call. 

“Hi, Pete.” 

“Hi, Tracy,” Pete replies. “What have you got for me?” 

“I have good news and I have bad news, Pete,” Tracy answers, reservedly. 

“I could use some good news right about now,” says Pete with some exasperation.

“Well, the good news is that I did manage to find one insurance company willing to insure your restaurant.” 

“That’s great!” Pete exclaims excitedly, seeming to forget that bad news is about to follow. 

“The bad news,” Tracy continues, “is that even though the company is willing to allow you to make monthly payments, your premiums with this new company are going to increase from $5,000 for the year to about $14,000.”

Pete almost has a heart attack. His premiums nearly tripled in the space of a single year!

While Pete struggles with the news, Tracy does her best to explain why his premiums are so much higher. 

“Pete, you have to look at it from the new company’s viewpoint. They are willing to insure you. Remember, Pete, you only paid $5,000 to your previous company for the entire year while they paid out $150,000 for multiple claims.”

Tracy pauses while trying to be tactful with Pete.

“To be honest, every company to whom we submitted your account turned you down because of your claims. I’m sorry, Pete. This company is your only option.”

After this all sinks in, Pete has a question for Tracy. 

“Would I, by any chance, be able to get a discount on my insurance if I were the owner of my building?” 

“Why do you ask?” Tracy inquires before answering. 

“The owner of the building I am leasing is filing bankruptcy and wants to sell it to me at a pretty cheap price so I agreed to buy it. In fact, next Tuesday we are scheduled to close the deal, so if I buy more coverage can I get a discount?” 

“What are you buying the restaurant for?” Tracy responds. 

Pete relates this information to Tracy. She promises to revise her quotes, now including coverage for the building, and get back with him.

Tracy gets the adjusted quotes and calls Pete two days later. 

In our next article, we will learn what Pete’s options now are for the revised quotes.

Business Insurance for Restaurants New Orleans – Story Recap 

Today we continue the story of restaurant owner and entrepreneur Pete Ross as he navigates the pitfalls of opening and running his new restaurant, Squeaky Pete’s Pork Emporium.

During the short lifespan of his restaurant, Pete has had to deal with losing his entire stock of food due to power loss, a lawsuit from a customer who slipped on oil and injured himself, and an employee who was badly burned in a kitchen accident.

All the while, Pete’s insurance agent Tracy has advised him on what his insurance does and does not cover, as well as the available optional endorsements that would extend coverage for claim events that might otherwise not be covered.

Half a year goes by without any problems, until one day a grease fire is ignited in the kitchen.

Let’s find out what happens next…

New Orleans Business Insurance for Restaurants – Coverage Scenario Part 8

If you recall, Pete hired a company to clean his grease traps each week. However, Pete did not notice that the company had not come by in a while to empty them, so they became jam-packed with grease.

Grease traps can and do catch on fire, and that’s exactly what happened to one of Pete’s grease traps on a busy Saturday evening. Alvin, one of the restaurant’s part time waiters, was walking by just as the fire broke out and takes immediate action by dumping a pitcher of water on the fire!

Unfortunately that was the wrong move for a grease fire. Now the small fire has quickly become a much bigger one, causing all of the kitchen staff of Squeaky Pete’s Pork Emporium to frantically exit the kitchen in a panic.

Immediately the fire alarms go off causing what could be best described as a chaotic stampede of customers rushing for the door.

Ginger, one of the older, more experienced waitresses, rushes to the kitchen and grabs a Class B fire extinguisher. She douses the flames and before long they have died down.

One of the customers outside called 911, and fire trucks pull up a few minutes later as Ginger walks out the door carrying the empty fire extinguisher.

Pete had run down to the local Costco to pick something up and arrived 10 minutes after Ginger doused the grease fire, only to see customers milling in the parking lot along with two fire trucks and firemen rolling up their hoses.

Pete begins to wonder if he’s cursed. He thinks to himself, “fire should be covered by my insurance.”

By now he has Tracy on speed dial. She’s not in the office right now, of coursde, but he leaves a message stating that he needs to file another claim.

What will Tracy have to say about this one? Is a fire claim covered by Pete’s’ insurance? Find out next week!
