No. As a general rule, EPA recommends you enter as few Property Uses as possible. Some Property Types ask you about Cooking Facilities in your Property Use Details:
- K-12 Schools, Hotel, Worship Facilities, & Supermarket ask if you have a “Cooking Facility.” If you have a cafeteria, restaurant, or snack bar, this is the way you include it in Portfolio Manager. You should not break it out as a separate Property Use. If you have a small employee breakroom, it should not be counted as a “Cooking Facility.”
- Hospitals are assumed to have Cooking Facilities so you should not break them out separately.
- Offices – See this FAQ.
The only exception to this rule is if you have a restaurant/cafeteria that is:
- More than 25% of the property's GFA (then you should enter a separate Property Use)
Refer to this FAQ for more information on when to break out different property use types.
