     Looking for Coffee Shop Insurance?

    The Retail Mutual is dedicated to providing a specialist alternative to traditional insurance for the independent retail community. Run by retailers for retailers, we exist to help give you peace of mind and are passionate about protecting the independent retail businesses on our high streets.

    What Does Coffee Shop Insurance offer?

    Coffee shops are a great place for people to relax and rejuvenate, where you can serve your customers with their favourite beverages and food items they enjoy. Serving so many customers throughout the day, it’s important you find the right coffee shop insurance to meet your needs. A spilt hot drink, a burn from your equipment or even a simple slip or fall could place your business under huge financial pressure.

    An Alternative to Coffee Shop Insurance

    The Retail Mutual is people-focused, operating solely on the behalf of our Member community to offer a compelling alternative to traditional business insurance. We’re passionate about protecting the independent stores on our high streets in local communities across the UK. Run by retailers for retailers, we specialise in providing food and drink business cover for your high-street store, and our business cover alternative to traditional coffee shop insurance is no exception.

    Independent coffee shops face stiffer competition than ever before. You want to differentiate yourself from popular high street stores and make your coffee shop the go-to meeting place in your area. With a high footfall during your opening hours, this can leave you vulnerable. Accidents and injuries to customers and staff may be unavoidable, and without an effective protection plan or coffee shop insurance in place, your business could be financially liable.

    The risks your shop faces extend far beyond opening hours. Break-ins and violent crime can cause significant damage to your property, incurring thousands of pounds in damage. Finding the money to cover these costs can be extremely difficult, and that’s where The Retail Mutual can help. We recognise that the variety of risks you face can be overwhelming, which is why we aim to help you identify the cover types you may require for your individual business. We can then create a flexible alternative to coffee shop insurance that safeguards both your business and your premises.

    When I arranged my Business Cover with The Retail Mutual, the team were fantastic with a friendly, informative and professional service. Thank you especially to Laz and Gary for your assistance, I couldn’t have asked for more.

    Laura Fisher, Basingstoke

    We would definitely recommend the Mutual. We were given loss of earnings on three occasions when we asked, which kept the business solvent. Being closed for six weeks over the Christmas period, which is our peak trading time, could have been a financial disaster but the interim payments were a godsend

    Mr Baillie, Perth

    Many thanks to the team who dealt with my claim so quickly and efficiently, it was greatly appreciated.
