Unique insurance especially for franchises

To arrange efficient, effective insurance for your franchise, call Paul Kuhn on 04 802 0168 or email Exclusively through FANZ, franchisors and franchisees can now get business insurance specifically designed to suit their needs. This insurance policy offers stock and asset cover pre-set to $1 million (Experience shows only 20% of businesses have sufficient cover at claim time for the real risks they face). Members also benefit from low excess amounts on claims. And when it comes to business interruption, cover doesn’t start until trading actually stops an invaluable benefit, especially when repairs are delayed. It is also the only insurance policy in New Zealand where FANZ members can get protection against “loss of attraction”, i.e. the effect on turnover if an anchor tenant closes after suffering an insured loss, or when other parts of the shopping area suffer insured damage that keeps customers away like partial quake damage.

Protection for franchisor and franchisee

Our business insurance solution for members provides protection to both the franchisor and franchisee. Obviously, any event that affects the franchisee also has a knock-on effect on the franchisor. So by protecting the franchisee, the franchisor also gains protection. However, this insurance goes even further: it offers compensation to the franchisor following an insured disruption to the franchisee’s business. In other words, the franchisor will still receive that franchisee’s fee even if an event prevents the franchisee from trading.

Support from our insurance partner, Crombie Lockwood

This insurance package is unique in New Zealand and is offered to FANZ members through our insurance partner, Crombie Lockwood. Founded in Napier in 1978, Crombie Lockwood has grown to be the largest insurance broker in New Zealand, with 26 offices nationwide. As our partner, Crombie Lockwood works for you, not for the insurance companies, to make certain you get the best results at claim time.
