  • You may now hire a caterer during a social event by clicking on a Refrigerator or Stove, even if you chose not to hire a caterer while setting up the event.

Fixed in Patch 1.47.49

What happened to caterers in Sims 4?

★★★★ Novice

I have noticed that the "Hire Caterer" option is not available anymore? I clear my cache, repair the game and I do not have mods/cc.

I can't hire temporary Caters anymore?

★★★★★ Newbie

I used to be able to click on the refrigerator or stove and it had the option of "hire caterer" and it was super helpful when I was in a rush. Now, the option doesn't come up for me at all. I even looked under the services you can hire on your phone but it isn't there either. PLEASE HELP!!

This seems to be an acknowledged issue after the last patch, there's a thread about it here! No solution yet though.

Hire service when clicking on refridgerator

★★★★ Novice

I used to be able to "Hire Service" when I clicked on an oven or refrigerator and a cook would come over and make about 6 meals for me.  Since Cats and Dogs, I can't do that any longer. Is this something that will be fixed in the future? I don't use any CC or mods.
