NIGHT AT THE OPERA HOUSE BENEFITS RESTAURANT PAC

We had a great night at the annual political dinner benefiting the NRA Restaurant PAC. Joining us as special guests were Senator Cory Gardner, Congressman Mike Coffman, and Congressman Doug Lamborn. Guests were treated to an amazing meal prepared by Executive Chef Brian Knutson & Sous Chef Nick Lachman of Garden of the Gods Collection, Executive Chef Rich Byers of The Corner Office, Executive Chef Ben Huber & Sous Chef Brett Boulter of Epicurean Group, Executive Chef Austin Cueto & Pastry Chef Saura Madani of Kevin Taylor Restaurant Group, Executive Pastry Chef Adam Thomas of The Broadmoor Hotel, and Master Baker Joshua Aldarondo of Delicias Bakery. Perfectly paired wines were supplied by Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits and Republic National Distributing Company. We thank all of our hosts and sponsors for an incredible evening.

August Edition of ‘On the Fly’ – a short monthly news update for CRA members that will give you the lowdown on what you need to know.





COLORADO RESTAURANT INSURANCE ADDS EMPLOYMENT PRACTICE AND CYBER SECURITY LIABILITY LINES OF INSURANCE

CRI welcomes a new staff member, Jason VanGotten, who is helping restaurants protect themselves from exposure due to EPLI and Cyber liability claims.  Did you know that you are 3X more likely to have an Employment Practices Liability claim (discrimination, harassment, retaliation and wrongful termination, etc.) then you are a General Liability or Property claim?  And did you also know that the restaurant industry is one of the most frequently targeted industries of hackers with the food service industry accounting for roughly half of all reported cyber breaches. Costs to help fight these liabilities can reach up into the hundreds of thousands. To learn more about how to protect your business, contact Colorado Restaurant Insurance, 303-830-2972. Or talk to Jason VanGotten directly at 303-880-2806 or jvangotten@corestaurant.org. He’ll be happy to walk you through all your options.
