Grocery delivery fans outside of Seattle and California, rejoice: Amazon plans to expand its Amazon Fresh offering beyond its current three markets, CEO Jeff Bezos confirmed in his 2013 letter to shareholders published today.

"We'll continue our methodical approach – measuring and refining Amazon Fresh – with the goal of bringing this incredible service to more cities over time," he said in the letter.

For five years, Fresh was only available in Seattle, before the company launched the program last year in Los Angeles and, six months later, San Francisco. Several reports over the past year have said Amazon plans to expand the delivery service into 10 to 20 more new markets this year, but this may be the first time Bezos has publicly acknowledged the expansion plans.
