Zurich partners with METRO Germany

Zurich Group Germany has partnered with German wholesale retailer METRO AG to launch “GastroSchutz”, a modular insurance cover that was developed by Zurich exclusively for METRO customers.

Metro AG’s main customer groups are Hotels, Restaurants, Bars, and Cafes, as well as catering companies, canteen operators, and street food vendors. Traders include smaller grocery stores, kiosks, petrol stations as well as other wholesalers, where Metro AG serves as a large wholesaler for others.

“With the all-round carefree insurance package, restaurateurs can cover their business comprehensively – and at a top price-performance ratio for METRO’s catering customers. When designing the modular security package, the focus was on the special needs and framework conditions of the catering industry. We developed the ‘GastroSchutz’ together with restaurateurs and were able to take into account the industry-specific requirements from the start, such as a particularly clear offer structure, an uncomplicated conclusion option and short contract periods with monthly termination options.” – Sebastian Wolf, Head of Cooperations, Partnerships & Affinity Business at the Zurich Group Germany.

The scope of the “GastroSchutz” includes the following security modules: business liability, content insurance, private liability, loss of earnings insurance, glass insurance, electronics insurance, machine insurance, legal protection, elementary insurance and business closure. The offer calculation for “GastroSchutz” is done online with just ‘a few clicks’.
