A restaurant has a lot of needs: staff, a building or truck to work out of, and perhaps most importantly, food. So what’s a restaurant to do if its refrigeration unit dies? Not only are you left in the unenviable situation of having to fix the darn thing or buy a new refrigeration unit, you may also have to throw out thousands of dollars worth of spoiled food. For a small restaurant, this can be catastrophic. 

Always check your refrigerator every two hours to make sure that it’s still in good working order, and keep the temperature set at or below 40 degrees to keep the food at safe temperatures. But when your unit inevitably sputters out, you’re not alone.

By planning ahead, you can save yourself time, money and heartache. Erie Insurance’s business insurance package can include a mechanical and electrical breakdown policy, to help you get your broken equipment repaired or replaced as quickly as possible. Even better, refrigerated items are covered under your property policy.
