Epic Programs Group, a managing underwriter and program administrator providing risk management and insurance solutions, has announced an expansion of coverage available in its newest program for delivery operators.
Dubbed "SLICE" (safety, loss control, insurance, coverage, expertise), the program now includes customized Commercial Excess Liability Coverage designed specifically for pizza delivery operators.
The coverage is written by an AM Best A-rated class XV insurance company and is admitted in all states. Limits of coverage can range from $1 million to $10 million.
SLICE's excess coverage includes both automobile liability (including non-owned and hired auto coverage) and liquor liability coverage.
Additional value added coverage for restaurants includes:
- Foodborne illness coverage
- Pesticide, herbicide and fungicide exposures
- Crisis response (with no deductible)
- $250,000 crisis management cost
- $50,000 for public relations expense
"Agents and brokers who work extensively in the pizza business have enthusiastically embraced SLICE," said Seth Madnick, managing principal of Epic Programs Group. "The program's unique excess liability coverage will add significantly to the benefits and value they are able to deliver to their clients."
