pizza delivery operatorsSAN RAMON, Calif., Sept. 28, 2011 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — EPIC Programs Group, a managing underwriter and program administrator providing leading-edge risk management and insurance solutions nationally, announces the launch of their newest program for Pizza Restaurants and Delivery Operators. Dubbed “SLICE” (safety, loss control, insurance, coverage, expertise), the new program specifically addresses a significant exposure and principle risk management concern of Pizza Delivery Operators: liability resulting from their delivery drivers.

The SLICE program is underwritten by an AM Best rated A (excellent) XII insurance company specializing in auto related exposure and coverage. SLICE focuses on reducing and mitigating these exposures through required delivery driver training and education and a proprietary kit of customized risk management tools.

In addition, SLICE offers the following benefits to pizza delivery operators and the agents/brokers who serve them:
* Protection designed specifically for pizza restaurant owners and delivery operators
* Comprehensive, bundled package protection with strong underwriting, loss control and dedicated claims administration – including 24/7 claims reporting
* Coverage offered in most states – admitted paper in 40 states and growing
* Can bind coverage for any effective date – no common program anniversary date
* In-house underwriting.

“We are extremely excited to introduce the SLICE program,” said Seth Madnick, managing principal of EPIC Programs Group. “As agents and brokers who work extensively in the pizza business know only too well, the insurance marketplace for pizza restaurant operators – particularly deliver operations – is currently in a state of flux, limiting the coverage options they can present to their clients. SLICE is the right answer at the right time for agents and brokers who work with a significant number of pizza delivery clients.”
