ChiliFresh Enterprises, Inc. (Chilifresh) is one of the leading catalog enhancement product providers headquartered in North America. We have been in the library business since 2007. ChiliFresh was the first company to create a crowd-sourced reviews and ratings platform that integrates into library catalogs. Following a successful rollout of the Patron Book Review Engine, it became obvious that libraries could benefit from other platforms to further enhance the online catalog to encourage community participation.
