We’ve got the experience and reputation to keep you protected. 

Founders has long been considered one of the leading Hospitality Industry Insurers. Over 50 years of experience in Liquor Liability and Special Events makes us the natural preference for producers in 18 states throughout the country. Our commercial programs are competitively priced and have been a solid fit for customers since our beginnings in the insurance business, all the way back to our inception in 1901. Insuring Chicago dance halls in the early 1960’s, Founders used an application asking how frequently the orchestra played!

Five decades of experience allows for flexibility in risk acceptance, too. Late closings, prior claims, new ventures, live entertainment or special events aren’t a problem for Founders. Check out some of the risks we cover below.
