It is extremely tough to find an honest straight forward person that cares about the outcome of their work. I reached Out to Mark after have talked to dozens of plumbers, electricians, contractors, city and county officials about a stalled project. Mark went out of his way to help me advance and finalize the store. He is very knowledgeable and knows what the city and county look for unlike other contractors that do not specialize in Restaurant build/ construction. Highly Recommended!!!!!! Thank you Mark!
I call him Magic Mark! Not for his dancing skills but because he makes things happen -magically. From start to finish Magic Mark’s main goal is to take care of every aspect of your buildout so that you can focus on operating the business. With construction, there will be hurdles but Magic Mark takes care of all of it by working his magic.I did solicit several bids for our project and we ended up choosing Magic Mark for our buildout because he’s: 1) Easy going 2) ALWAYS available 3) Honest 4) Timely. Like all business owners, we were budget conscious but we feared going with the cheapest contractor who does shady work and having it end up wasting more money and time. We love that he is budget conscious and looks after our bottom line as well. Of course I have trust issues with every human being in my life, but when it came to working with Magic Mark, I learned to just trust him. He knows what he’s doing and he’s on your side.Our buildout finish fairly quickly around budget. We love our space and the opportunity to work with Magic Mark. Our next bakery, we’ll be bringing the same magic to the store.
I currently own two restaurants. Restaurant 1 was done by another contractor who did a great job. Restaurant 2 was done by Mark.Why did I go to Mark for number 2? Simply because he had a vision and gets a feel for what you want. Don’t expect anything cheap. Quality service and work doesn’t come cheap. If you find a contractor that does cheap, chances are, you’ll have to end up spending more money.Mark and his team did a phenomenal job on my restaurant. From step 1 of getting permits to the finish line of getting everything signed off by the fire, health, and city.For my future restaurants, I will definitely be working with Mark and his team again.
Mark built Lola’s Bixby Knolls for us and did an amazing job. Surpassing all of expectations! He has guaranteed all of his work and repaired anything we have asked of needed. Trust us he is a true professional and gets the job done so you can open your doors. Thanks again Mark!Luis NavarroPresidentLola’s Mexican Cuisine
Mark and his team are wonderful to work with. Very responsive and cost conscious. Quality and attention to detail are always on point! Being a first time business owner building out a cafe can be very stressful. But Mark kept me informed and handled any questions or concerns with the utmost professionalism and speed. He genuinely cares about his customers and the quality of his work. And the fact that he can design and build your project is a HUGE timesaver!! No need to spend the time and money on an architect. He designed and built the first location of The Pie Bar in downtown Long Beach. I could not be more pleased!! I highly recommend Handian Construction!
Mark is so awesome. Out of all the contractors we have had to deal with throughout this venture, Mark is the best one we have had the pleasure of working with. He’s organized, on time, on budget, hard-working, creative, and thoughtful.We’re so lucky to have him as our contractor and will continue to hire Mark for all our future build-outs and tenant improvements. Finally after 4 years we have found our awesome contractor!
Mark Handian is a great dedicated contractor. I was a newbie inexperienced and he helped guide me through smoothly from start to finish the built out restaurant.He’s also there whenever we need after the job is done. 5 starts for customer service and professionalism.
Being a first time business owner can be stressful because of all of the unknowns – design, tenant improvement, contractors, build-out etc. When we met Mark, right of the bat he was very easy to talk to. He thoroughly listened to all of our questions and concerns and worked with us to come up with the best and most feasible solutions. He was always pushing to meet deadlines, and pulling strings to get approvals. What I can’t stress enough is timing, it’s amazing how fast the process was without effecting the overall quality. Whenever we encountered a bump in the road, Mark would come up with a quick solution that was within our budget. He’s straightforward and reliable which is why we decided to continue working with him on our second location and possibly many more future locations. Thanks Mark for all that you have done for us!
Mark’s expertise, hard work, and vision has truly made The Brass Lamp (the first book bar and lounge) the coolest place to hang out! His architectural and engineering background makes him a one-stop shop for all of your design and construction needs. The construction and development of my restaurant-bar was executed very well throughout every unexpected hurdle. Mark and his team are thorough, precise, and extremely creative. Handian Construction is solutions-driven, and works hard to keep costs down.Thank you Mark for your hard work and dedication in working on this project with me!!! You’ve built a beautiful bar for me and the downtown Long Beach community.

Where to begin…!! There are so many things I could say about Mark Handian- great guy, there’s never a dull moment, very dedicated and hard-working, etc. but all you really need to know is that if you need a job done, he’s the guy you want on that job! He’ll make sure you’re taken care of. He won’t give up on you or your project. He’s got a great team! I’ve gotten to know Mark while he was working on The Brass Lamp (NOW OPEN!!) and I must say, it has been such a pleasure to work with him. We are very happy to finally be open, but we definitely miss having Mark around.
Handian Construction is a pleasure to work with. They provide a straightforward estimate and are well educated in the permitting process and buildout.They have built out a couple restaurants in our market. Mark’s team worked meticulously and had everything completed in a timely fashion. They even kept the market spotless around the work site.I highly recommend Mark Handian to anyone and more importantly to all our new tenants. He’s gets the job done!! The completed project was truly beyond my expectations. It was a wonderful experience.
Mark is no stranger to us! He’s done a great a job for us in the past and it was a no brainer that we brought him back to open our second location. Mark has great patience and spends time with his clients to understand what concept and feel that they want. He makes sure your happy with everything before he moves to the next step. If you’re looking for someone to do the work right and on time, he’s your guy.

I came to Mark asking him to help me open up my restaurant. With his great expertise, I got approved within 6 weeks. He is very honest, knowledgeable, and very helpful. I am always skeptical of finding new architects or construction companies because I don’t know where to go or trust. But, know that Mark does not take advantage of your money, and treats every business as his own. He also answers your phone calls as soon as he can. I highly recommend Mark & Handian construction. If you are building a new restaurant, taking over an existing restaurant, or in a tough situation and need help, look no further. This is the right company and the right guy to work with. Also, to add his assistant, Dyno is also a very knowledgable and helpful individual. Trust this review and go with them. I guarantee you will have no regrets. I will definitely call them up in the next few months for them to help again with my future restaurants. Thanks again for everything Mark! Looking forward to doing business with you again.
Mark’s team reached out to me after hearing that we were looking for a contractor to build out an eatery in Anaheim. After exploring our options and speaking with Mark, we decided that his team would be the best for the job. His professionalism and consideration for his clients is what sets him apart and what we appreciated most. The icing on the cake is his ability to expedite construction and permitting. It took him less than a month to fully build out our empty spot. He understood that we were under tight time frames and a tight budget and worked with us to meet our strenuous expectations. Handian Construction is a one stop shop too, which makes it incredibly easy for first-timers. His team is able to provide concept designs, the necessary architectural and mechanical drawings (that are able to pass through the city rather quickly due to their experience and understanding of various guidelines/regulations), and diligent construction team. We were lucky that they found us!
I am pleased to highly recommend Mark Handian owner of Handian Construction Corporation. When my dental office suffered a plumbing leak resulting in a flood, Mark was a reassuring resource to turn to. He coordinated painting and cabinetry repairs and helped with insurance claims. His advice and quality work brought a calming organization to the otherwise stressful situation. His workers showed up on time, and cleaned up after themselves. Thank you, Mark!

Mark Handian performed facility drawings for one our contracted buildings. The drawings were done professionally and on time.
Thank you Mark
My 90-year-old client needed some repairs for FHA approval. Mark took care of the work immediately, going above and beyond to help her and me out. We were very happy with his work and reasonable rates. I highly recommend him!
As a homeowner in Burbank, I recently contracted with Mark Handian dba Handian Construction. Prior to contracting with him, I sought and evaluated over a dozen bids, narrowing them down to a final three. I contacted two of his references both of which recommended him without qualification, and I felt very comfortable with his knowledge, professional expertise, and demeanor. I contracted for him to: #1-remove and replace attic insulation, #2-remove and replace duct work in the attic #3-install a new furnace and a new air conditioning unit. The work would be completed in a week and the equipment would qualify for rebates from the LA County, City of Burbank, and So Cal Gas. The work was completed on time in a professional manner, all questions and issues were addressed and resolved and all rebates have been received. On a rating scale of one to five stars, I would rate the work done by Handian Construction, with five stars. Steve
