Business Insurance Policies

Another potential source of assistance is your own business insurance policy. You will need to reach out to your insurance agent to see if your plan contains coverage for the business interruptions faced by the COVID-19 pandemic and if your specific situation qualifies. Please seek guidance from your insurance provider as to how your policy might address this situation. Click here for more information.

Restaurant Operators – Redefining Services and Delivery Options

If you are a restaurant operator and do not currently offer delivery or even prepared meal options, you may want to consider these as potential business lines. Consider working with your existing wait staff to convert them to delivery drivers, or if that is not an option, working with third-party delivery services such as Uber Eats, Door Dash or the like. Here is a list of restaurants and businesses still open during Covid-19.

DoorDash

Retail Operators – Optimizing Online Sales

If you are traditional retail, how do you currently handle or look at online sales initiatives? Perhaps converting in-store sales staff to online influencers utilizing social media efforts to drive online sales, and potentially to be delivery drivers of product, where possible and practical.

These are incredibly challenging times, and they require strategic opportunity-focused thinking. The ability to be resourceful and adapt to the changing needs and demands of our markets is critical, as needs and demands will continue to exist but the ways in which they are met may look very different for a while.

If you have any questions, concerns or we can be of assistance, please do not hesitate to reach out to us. As always, we wish each of you and those you care for good health and continued well-being during this time.
