KIDS on the Sunshine Coast have one less fun outing option as the Coast's only Yogurtland Kawana Waters closed down on the weekend.

Owners confirmed the Kawana Shoppingworld outlet traded its last day on Sunday, but declined to answer questions about why the store had closed or how many staff had lost their jobs.

It was a favourite spot for youngsters to assemble their own desserts, with 16 yogurt flavours and 46 toppings on offer.

Kawana Shoppingworld centre manager Kim MacKay said the centre had already found a new tenant for the prime site, at the entrance to the food court.

Mr MacKay would not reveal the new tenant's name, but signs will go up in the next week or two as the shop's fit-out commences, and it will be open within a month.

Sunshine Coast residents speculated on Facebook that high rent had forced Yogurtland to leave, but, while the owner neither confirmed or denied this, Mr MacKay said rent had not changed.

"When it's a big landlord, there's always street talk like that - but it's nothing like that at all,” he said.

"It's a corporate decision, they've done it elsewhere around Australia.”

He said rent hadn't increased for Kawana Shoppingworld tenants and would stay stable into the foreseeable future.

"We have a replacement tenant going in there. It's a nutrition-based type of operation,” he said.

"They do (acai) bowls, healthy bagels and that kind of thing.”

Apart from Yogurtland's departure, there had been no recent changes in tenancy, Mr MacKay said.

"Nobody's moving out, nobody's moving in - it's all very stable,” he said.
