Shared kitchens rely on proper insurance coverage to operate legally, and as a shared kitchen operator, you bear the responsibility when your food business clients fall short of compliance. Reducing risk is the name of the game but we understand that managing document compliance can be an additional burden for shared kitchen managers. That’s why The Food Corridor is consistently finding new ways to make your life easier.
For a while now, our software has offered document compliance features that enable you or your clients the ability to upload documents directly to their accounts, including expiration dates. The tracking of these documents allows you to stay informed when these documents are successfully uploaded or are set to expire. You can even enforce requirements by setting functions such as “disallow bookings’ for clients who have not uploaded their required documents.
But we didn’t stop there. We wanted to go the extra mile because we value your time. We are thrilled to announce our latest feature: The FLIP integration.
The team at Veracity Insurance Solutions has been insuring mobile vendors and other non-standard food businesses for years, providing tailored coverage to meet their unique needs. They created The Food Liability Insurance Program (FLIP) as a package to make getting coverage easier for users of shared kitchens. Rather than filling out a form and then waiting for days to be approved, commercial kitchen renters can have a policy set up in as little as 10 minutes by filling out a simple form.
FLIP has been a long-time partner of The Food Corridor. The program is specifically built for those who use shared commercial kitchens. So, we decided to team up with them to offer shared kitchen operators a quick and easy solution to help streamline their clients’ insurance compliance– all from their Food Corridor account.
FLIP integration takes the headache out of reviewing client insurance documents for proper upload. With this seamless integration, you can bid farewell to manually combing through files. FLIP ensures that client insurance documents are accurately uploaded, saving you valuable time and effort.
Say goodbye to the hassle of managing insurance compliance and embrace the convenience and peace of mind that the FLIP integration brings. Let us handle the complexities, so you can focus on what matters most—running your shared kitchen smoothly and efficiently.
Here’s how it works…
Once you opt in to the FLIP integration, your clients will be able to apply for FLIP insurance through their Food Corridor account, eliminating the need for back-and-forth communication. They’ll be able to upload PDF documents and stay informed about policy expiration dates. They’ll also have the flexibility to update, renew, or cancel policies. As the kitchen, you’ll receive notifications when these actions occur.
What does it cost?…
This integration is entirely free. Yep. We said it. Free. In fact, clients who opt for FLIP insurance through the Food Corridor will also receive a $10 discount on their FLIP premium by using the code FC10.
And there’s more…
Kitchens who opt in to the FLIP integration will be automatically added as an “additional insured” on their clients’ policies. This provides an extra layer of protection and ensures that your interests are safeguarded in the event of an incident.
