大食堂が消えた要因として、「食のニーズの多様化」などと云われもしたが、私はそれよりも、消費者が質の良いサービスを求めるようになったからだと思う。

云われもしたが
I've already mentioned (=言われ), but...
there have been already mentioned by the others, but...
there really existed such a reason(=謂われ), but...

    In this context, "mentioned by the others" is a good translation, but let me point out that いわれもした is more generally, "argued by some (not a majority opinion)." If it were いわれた, then I'd understand that criticisms to this effect were loud and many.

    Forgive me for bringing up this topic again, but is this ~(verb stem)もする construction similar to the ~たりもする construction?
