QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

A new bakery and cafe in Quincy opened for business Thursday morning. 

Karen Wagner and Melanie Aitken opened The Yum Factory, located at 700 Maine St.

They said they have combined their cake baking and chocolate making skills. Along with the sweets, they will provide quiche, muffins and bagels for breakfast and sandwiches, soups and salads for lunch. 

Wagner and Aitken said their first day was very busy and they want to welcome all to come in. 

"We want it just to be welcoming," Aitken said. "We want people to be comfortable and feel welcome to walk in, hang out, sit around, do their homework. We have nice cushions in our window seats. You know, hang out and be with us."

They are looking forward to providing baking classes for kids and adults coming up in October for Halloween. They will also have local artists coming in to teach art classes.
