waiter with diners


Nearly half a million U.S. businesses are restaurants of some kind – and whether you call it a bistro, café, pub, cafeteria or coffeehouse, your business is an important part of the economy, accounting for hundreds of billions in revenue each year.

That profit, however, comes with risks, and Hanover Risk Solutions has targeted some of the most significant risks your industry faces that impact the safety of workers, patrons and your property.
