Bars. Restaurants. Soccer. Cars. Insurance.

All things I am deeply involved in and incredibly passionate about.

The leading hospitality insurance carrier, Society Insurance, is now providing insurance coverage for the first time in Minnesota after 103 years in the making. Society Insurance provides insurance protection to as many as 1 of every 3 establishments in other metropolitan cities it serves.

Insurance premiums are a large cost on a bar or restaurant's budget. Reducing those expenses to improve profitability, while protecting the business from costly unexpected losses, is a critical business practice. We want to be your resource and advocate in protecting the business and managing the costs.

The team at Minnesota Insurance Group have all worked in the hospitality industry prior to our insurance careers. We understand and appreciate your challenges, we know your environment and your risks, and we provide insurance and other risk management resources to control premium costs providing the protection you want and need.
