As a sandwich shop owner, you are responsible for the welfare of the customers that enter your premises. You therefore need public liability cover in case an injury to a third party or damage to their property should occur.

If you have staff working at your sandwich bar, even temporary or part-time staff, you need to add employers' liability to your business insurance. Simply Business offers it as part of one simple policy, cutting out time-consuming paperwork.

Product liability cover is included in your sandwich shop insurance policy when you buy public liability insurance. Because you work with (fresh) food, product liability insurance protects you against claims for incidents such as food poisoning.

When you take out shop insurance for your business, consider adding business interruption cover. This will ensure that you do not lose all your income if you are forced to temporarily stop trading due to damage to your business premises or equipment. You will also need to include separate cover for your premises and equipment in your policy.
You can insure your premises against damage to the building from disasters such as fire and flood. If you rent your business space you are unlikely to need buildings insurance, however you should contact your commercial landlord to make sure.

You may need to insure the fixtures and fittings in your premises. If you make improvements to your sandwich bar (kitchen, bar, seating area) our insurance policy will also take these improvements into account.
If you keep stock on your premises, it is sensible to insure it separately from your contents insurance. The value of stock can run to thousands or tens of thousands of pounds, so if it was damaged, destroyed or stolen, your stock cover would pay the cost of replacements.
If your sandwich bar is busy, you are likely to handle significant amounts of cash on a daily basis. Even if you are careful when you transport the money to the bank or store your cash in a safe, your hard-earned money could still be stolen or go missing. Our loss of money insurance will cover this loss.
If you purchase your food and ingredients at foodmarkets, the last thing you need is for those food purchases to be damaged or stolen before making it to your sandwich shop. Our goods in transit insurance covers this risk, as well as sandwich deliveries to your customers.
