BETHESDA, Md. -- The Assured Cos., through its OperationsAssured division, has announced plans to expand its comprehensive fixed-price repair and maintenance programs to cover grocery stores, convenience stores and gas stations nationwide.

The company has been involved with the restaurant industry, through its DineAssured division, and has also started expanding into the hospitality industry, through its RestAssured division.

The Assured Companies' fixed price programs offer businesses the opportunity to save money and manage [image-nocss] risk by providing coverage on their equipment through an exclusive embedded insurance component and by providing many other services such as regular preventative maintenance on all covered equipment, it said.

Mark Bucher, founder of The Assured Cos. and a veteran of the restaurant industry, said, Our programs help businesses to streamline their operations, flat line repair and maintenance expenditures, and manage risk. Our customers can effectively flat line and reduce shareholder liability by eliminating the financial risks associated with repairs and maintenance.

For a fixed price, paid monthly, OperationsAssured offers a program where the business calls a central number and its repair and maintenance needs are handled expeditiously. Businesses can use either their own in-house vendors or a national network of certified vendors, whichever they prefer. The programs are flexible and are tailored to each particular business' needs.

There are no deductibles or hidden fees in our programs, said Bucher. Our programs provide coverage for everything from equipment replacement due to failure to grease trap service. He added, The list of services we cover [includes] coverage for fuel pumps, quick lines and car washes.
