Ian and Qiana Mafnas are a husband and wife pitmaster/executive chef team, that have over 20 years of restaurant experience between the two of us. Ian has been developing his love for smoking meats over a period of eight years, and Qiana has worked in some of the finest restaurants in California. We have finally decided to share our experience as well as our love for smoking meats and cooking with our community and our "Axiom Fam". Axiom Kitchen is managed and run by our family, including our son and daughter-in-law Chef Tai and Chef Dominique, and our front-of-house managers Elleana and Robbie. Add our amazing expediters Kevell, Christopher, Callista, Ian Jr., and Amara and you have magic!
We started Axiom Kitchen with a dream and hope. Our vision began from a tragedy and has since become a dream that we hope continues. We dedicate our restaurant to our guardian angel- our son and brother Noah- who passed away tragically on March 19, 2018. We continue to work our hardest and push through difficulties, knowing he has our back! We love you, Noah!
We refuse to compromise on quality in our restaurant. That's why we source our fresh ingredients from local farmers' markets, community businesses and keep quality in the forefront of everything that we do. No matter what time of year, you can be sure you're eating the best of the season.

Axiom Kitchen Smoked Meats & BBQ was built from the ground up by Qiana and lan Manas- both former addicts and both formerly system impacted, and has been featured on 2 news channels (KTLA5 and FOX11 Good Day LA), 4 publications (Long Beach Post, The HiLo, Voyage LA and Eater LA), a radio station (102.7 KIISFM) and countless content from well-known foodies in Los Angeles, Orange County and Long Beach.
We've received many requests to reveal our business secrets, or how we managed to build our small business from non-existent to a very well known restaurant in less than one year. We are sharing our tips and strategies with you, because we feel that if we can do it then ANYONE can do it...and we want YOU to WIN!!
Join us as we share our story and our life experiences, and show you how to effectively build your small business in record time!
We will be providing a delicious 5-course dinner, courtesy of Axiom Kitchen as well!! We'll be providing tools and resources to help restaurant and other small business owners generate income and grow their client/ customer base with a limited budget!
