Industry Leaders in Restaurants & Hospitality

The Whitmore Group, Ltd. recognizes the challenges associated with the restaurant and hospitality industry, from potential lawsuits to property damage and theft. For this reason, we develop premier insurance plans, offering our clients protection from such possibilities. Each plan is tailored to accommodate individual client needs, since businesses, even those in the same industry, differ. We take pride in the quality of our services and we go above and beyond to ensure that our clients are more than happy with the coverage they receive.

Since The Whitmore Group’s establishment in 1989, our main objective was, and still is, to form relationships with our clients that feel more like partnerships, as we align goals and communicate with each other to stay on the same page. Our products and services in the restaurant and hospitality industry are of the same caliber as those we offer for clients in other industries. Working with us secures your business’ protection if ever an unfortunate event takes place.
