Ratner tastes and likes (or not)

A quote that could be taken on its own merits or as a slap at the other local businesses that are represented:
Francine Stephens, an owner of Franny's in Prospect Heights, practically around the corner from the arena, was approached by Levy [the concessionnaire] last year. "It just wasn't a fit," she said. "We're not able to mass-produce the food that we do, and we're not at a place in our lives that we're willing to compromise."
You who know her better than I (which is not at all): which is it? Honest self-assessment, snark, or both?
