Hotchkiss Insurance Agency (HIA) has received the endorsement from Texas Restaurant Association (TRA) for its restaurant specialty property and casualty(P&C) division.

HIA, through its strategic alliances with selected carriers, will provide business insurance products and services to TRA members and associate members.

TRA vice president Rick Madden said TRA members are hands-on entrepreneurs who recognize the need for valuable insurance products and risk management services.

"HIA assists our members in making sound decisions about their insurance programs," Madden said.

HIA is an independent insurance agency offering insurance products and services including commercial and personal insurance, life and health insurance, and workers’ compensation.

As a member of select associations and the recipient of local and statewide endorsements, HIA developed specialty programs for industries including restaurants, hotels, franchisors, home builders, general landscape and irrigation contractors, nurseries and churches.
