Austin, Texas — Whorton Insurance Services, the parent company of MFVInsurance.com, is pleased to announce the launch of the first national insurance program to serve the insurance needs of the mobile food vending industry, a new industry formed by the rapid expansion of mobile food trucks in metropolitan areas throughout the country.
Because of this rapid growth, fueled by an ever-increasing appetite and demand for gourmet food and beverages from mobile vendors, city governments are amending their outdated ordinances to accommodate these operations. Likewise, the insurance industry was lagging behind and needed to recognize mobile food vendors as a new, emerging distinct marketplace, and that is what MFV Insurance has been able to accomplish.
Through their efforts, as spokespersons for vendors nationally, MFV Insurance received in-house authority from various ‘admitted’ insurance carriers to underwrite, price, bind and provide policy services for this industry as a preferred class of business at highly competitive rates. MFV Insurance’s goal is to provide insurance and risk management services of the highest quality to meet the needs of their customers in this unique arena. MFV Insurance is striving to make insurance as accessible and affordable as possible to qualifying vendors.
Mobile food vendors nationwide are now able to protect their livelihood with innovative Property, Liability, Inland Marine, Automobile, Workers Compensation and Excess Liability coverages designed specifically for the mobile food vending industry.
To mobile food vendors, their vehicle, equipment and supplies are their livelihood; protecting their means of support is absolutely vital to them. However, accidents do happen. If an unforeseen event were to occur, MFV Insurance understands that they’ll not only be inconvenienced, but that their livelihood will be severely impacted as well. That is why MFV Insurance has partnered exclusively with national “A” Rated insurance companies known for their financial strength, stability, loss control, risk management and excellent claim services.
The new Mobile Food Vendors Insurance Program, which has been available on a trial basis in California and Texas, will roll out in 29 additional states beginning in May 2011. Other states will follow based on the demand. To see if this program is available in your state visit MFV Insurance at mfvinsurance.com.
The program has been designated a Preferred Provider by MobileFoodNews.com.
