About Us

David DeLorenzo, founder of the Bar & Restaurant Specialty Program

DeLo

In 2010, David was the proud recipient of the Volunteer of the Year award from the Arizona Hotel & Lodging Association and the Arizona Restaurant Association.

David DeLorenzo is a native Arizonan. He attended college at Arizona State University and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Marketing. After college David worked for Warner Bros records distributor, which started a 10 year career in the record entertainment industry. While engaged in the record industry, and armed with marketing knowledge, David opened his first marketing company called Diamond in the Rough Promotions.

While building his business, David discovered a niche market that could use his services: the restaurant industry. He developed his current affordable insurance for all sectors of the hospitality industry. David is a dedicated member of Arizona’s restaurant community, constantly staying current on the bar and restaurant industry, marketing to ensure that he is providing outstanding, quality service for restaurateurs.

In addition, David has built a reputation in the industry based on the trust that he will always look to serve the best interest of his clients in both insurance price and coverage. David is a silent investor of four restaurants in the Phoenix metro area. David feels that by traveling to these restaurants and getting his hands dirty he better understands the needs of the restaurant industry and thus, his client.

David is an avid runner and health fanatic. He is a family man at heart and cherishes the time he is able o spend with family and friends. David also enjoys music and science fiction and has a special place in his heart for Star Wars. “For those that need it, make time he will.”

"Being new to the restaurant business and having many challenges in store for me, David has made the insurance piece of my endeavor extremely fluid. His dedication was evident very early in the process as Dave provided me with free consultations several months before my restaurant was scheduled to open. He knows everyone in our industry and is willing to share all of his knowledge and contacts with his clients. Also, when the time came to evaluate my insurance needs, David was exceptional at explaining the strengths and weaknesses of all his vendors. If you have any insurance need, I do not hesitate to say David is one of the best. This is coming from someone with 18 years experience in the insurance industry."
