Special Offers

First Insurance Company of Hawaii is proud to offer Restaurant Recovery Insurance, backed by our sister company and leading specialty insurer, Tokio Marine HCC. This is a specific insurance policy that covers the potential gaps in your standard insurance policies by providing comprehensive coverage for your business should you suffer from a contamination incident, malicious product tampering or face baseless adverse publicity. For example, this policy offers business interruption coverage to get you back to pre-incident sales and can also cover brand name rehabilitation costs and product recall expenses. Restaurant Recovery Insurance also comes with a 24-hour hotline that offers crisis management advice as soon as a covered incident occurs.  Coverage is available to restaurants of any size, single or multi-location enterprises, including individual groups of franchisees. Standard coverage automatically includes income from royalties and a full policy limit for product extortion. No additional premium is charged when new locations are opened due to “organic growth” during the policy period (learn more).


Please talk to your agent/broker to determine your exact exposures and to procure coverage. You can also speak with a marketing representative at First Insurance Company of Hawaii to learn more.
