Hot light: Shaquille O'Neal says he wants to own 100 Krispy Kremes

Shaq Buys Krispy Kreme Store

Shaquille O'Neal, apparently, is not satisfied with owning just one Krispy Kreme store.

The basketball Hall of Famer, who took ownership of a historic Atlanta store in October, recently spoke with TMZ Sports about expanding his doughnut venture.

O’Neal said while he only owns one right now, he’d eventually like to have about 100 shops.

Last year, Tony Thompson, president and CEO of Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, expressed his confidence that the partnership would "have a big impact for us in Atlanta and around the world."

TMZ's 49-second video includes — along with a shout-out to O'Neal's mom — a plug for an anniversary deal taking place at participating locations Friday. Customers will be able to get a dozen Original Glazed doughnuts for 80 cents, if they buy a dozen doughnuts at regular price. 

The brand's global spokesman owns the Ponce de Leon location, which opened more than 60 years ago. (Yes, it is a participating location.)
