It occurs in a business plan: "The cafe will generate 288,000 tickets in the first year of operation and 1000000 tickets in the second year". Is a ticket in this sense like a share? Thank you in advance.

    It's hard to know, but I think that in restaurants, the check with the order is called a "ticket". They are estimating the amount of business they will be doing.

    I am waiting with bated breath to find out whether or not this is correct.

    I found some confirmation of my suggestion above. The following is about a new computer system that Mel's restaurant has installed that the servers use for taking orders.
    While the immediate benefit at Mel's has been more accurate and complete order entry, the new system has other pluses. "We weren't able to measure our ticket time [the time between an order being received and served] before, but now we know our average dinner ticket is about nine minutes," Desiano says.
